Work with members in your community and make a difference

Originally Wisegroup started out as a group of friends with ideas on how to make the world a better place. Now, we work towards this goal one project at a time with our devoted volunteers behind us. We like to brainstorm creative ways to help people, animals, and institutions in our community and around the world. We strive to make the world a better place and have fun while we're at it. Our organization always welcomes new volunteers to join!

Events in The Works:

Wise Talk - Our organization hosts a monthly seminar to bring people together and inform them of what is going on in the community as well as recognizing success stories and teaching important life skills.

Community Yoga - To help promote active living we have partnered with yoga teachers across Halifax to provide group yoga sessions to the public.

Community Kitchen - We have partnered with the Brunswick Street Mission to help provide the mission’s visitors with a hot and healthy meal. For this, we gather food and volunteers to cook and provide support for the visitors.

Wise Room - Wise Room is a housing initiative we have to rent out a room for free to people in need. To afford this we will rent out the room when not in use by in need patrons for funds to afford the rent to support the room.

Wise Search – We are exploring how we could assist in search and rescue efforts in the HRM. From loved ones who are flight risks to adventurers lost in the woods, we would like to support the efforts to find them. We aspire to be able to help rally volunteers to help search and be able to help cover incurred costs during the recovery of the missing persons.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is simple: We want to benefit those in need by bringing our heads together and solving problems. This includes all local issues.

PROJECTS

We are a young organisation that is always looking for new members to join our group with great ideas. Join us for the long run or join us for a single project.

Cooking Through Culture is apart of Wise Group’s new series of fundraising events. We will be hosting cooking classes to educate people on how to prepare delicious and authentic cuisine from various cultures. The best part is these classes are taught by native cooks who grew up with delicious, authentic cuisine.

Information on scheduling will be coming out soon, so stay tuned!

COMING SOON

1 MILLION FOR 1 MILLION is a project where we will be collecting at least one bottle for each resident of Nova Scotia! Having these bottles recycled will not only benefit the environment, but the proceeds from this will support our growth as a non-profit organization and our ongoing endeavours in the community.

If you are interested in joining this ongoing campaign, feel free to reach out to us through our Facebook page, our website wisegroupcanada.ca or text us at 902-800-9996.

ANNUAL

Every year we work to keep those on the street comfortable and safe. In the winter, we provide the homeless with sleeping bags and winter wear, while in spring-summer we provide weather-resistant clothing and other items to help with the heat.

ANNUAL

First impressions are important when you walk into a job interview and how you present yourself matters. Sadly, not everyone can afford a fresh new haircut, so we have partnered with a local barber to give free haircuts to those in need. This gives them the opportunity to better present themselves and not worry about the impact their appearance may have on a job interview or any other events in their life.

COMPLETED

Join Wisegroup's first depression workshop with Dr. Zaki, a local psychiatrist. This workshop on coping with depression is to become an ongoing series in the future Wise Talk project. 

More on the Wise Talk project coming soon!
